7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days.

I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard.



I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this.

I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Sunday morning in order to be at work noon. My New Years was ok, my past 3 New Years have been sad I hope this years will be better. I don't have any resolutions because I don't think there is anything about me that needs to be resolved, but I do like to make lists of the good and bad things of the previous year. 2006 had more good things than bad compared with crappy 2005.

Top 5 Good Things of 2006
1) Meeting Scott
2) Moving out of my parents house into a new city
3) Turning 21
4) Finding a school and a career that I want to do
5) Becoming closer with my dad

Top 5 Bad Things of 2006
1) Scott left me
2) I broke my arm
3) I'm very poor
4) My dad might lose his business
5) I still work at Menards

5 Things I look forward to in 2007
1) Going to London
2) Scott coming home
3) Getting closer to graduating
4) Summer bike rides
5) Getting a new job*

Back to my Christmas break, I thankfully got Christmas Eve off even though it looked like I wasn't going to. Scott came up for Christmas Eve, my first year bringing a boyfriend to meet the entire family. Christmas day we went to his house. I like his family. It was a little weird not going to my grandmas. Spent a few days in Cudahy, called in sick on Wednesday, then headed back to Little Chute for a few more days. I saw a lot of people that I missed.













Not pictured is Keely who I finally got to see after a year and a half. The only people I didn't see were Tyler, Susie, and my kids.

To clear up any confusion on where I work. I stopped showing up at American Eagle because they were paying me a high school wage that I could not afford to live off of so I am part time at Menards still. I'm learning more and more about electricity, pretty exciting I know.

I've been doing a lot of knitting with the free time that I have a lot of. I'll post pictures of my projects later. The free internet we were stealing doesn't work anymore so I'll be spending a lot of time hanging out at libraries and coffee shops.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
